Opal: Food + BodyWisdom – We are thrilled to have such an amazing resource within our seattle community. Opal creates a safe place for women to renter their relationship with their bodies with kindness and hope. They provide a range of care and support for disordered eating to full blown eating disorders. At a recent speaking event their co-founder Julie Church said through eating disorders we try to, “Simplify the complexities of life into a body shape and size.” I thought her words held so much compassion and clarity.
